Categories: Frosting & Fillings

This cream cheese frosting is perfect for red velvet cupcakes or cake. It is smooth and will easily frost 24 cupcakes or an entire cake.


  • 8 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 c. butter softened (or margarine)
  • 16 oz. powdered sugar 1 pkg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


Combine cream cheese, margarine or butter, and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Beat until well blended and smooth. Gradually add powdered sugar while beating. Frosting should be thick and smooth. If necessary, add more powdered sugar until the frosting is firm. For cakes and cookies using cream cheese frosting, make sure unused portions are refrigerated as cream cheese is a dairy product.
